Job Corps is a no-cost education and vocational training program. We are lucky to have the Westover Job Corps in Chicopee. Additionally, there other Job Corps training centers located in Massachusetts and New England. The Job Corps program supports low-income young people ages 16-24 by giving them the opportunity to learn marketable skills that will make for successful careers. The U.S. Department of Labor supports the program.
MassHire Springfield Career Center holds virtual orientations for Job Corps. See our calendar to attend.
